Possible False Positives, not sure?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a unique problem. I downloaded malwarebytes free version on my windows 7 computer and ran it. It comes back clean. I have ubuntu installed on a flashdrive through which I sometimes boot from. I installed Wine (a program that lets ubuntu run windows programs) and used it to run Malwarebytes while using ubuntu. The scan from using ubuntu comes back saying there are multiple threats, however they are all files from C:\windows\.... such as system32\dmusic32.dll or syswow64\iexplore.exe. Does anyone know if these are actually bad files or just something picked up because it is scanning an HDD with windows installed on it? I'm not quite sure why it would detect windows files as being threats. Thanks!
